Cost Versus Value of Adding New Siding to Your Home

Posted in Siding

Cost versus value is often a factor to consider when approaching new home improvement projects. This is especially important if you are planning to sell your home in the next few years. While many home improvement projects can add value to your home, you must consider how much the project will cost versus the value added to your home. One of the most beneficial home improvements when it comes to cost versus value is adding new vinyl siding. 

Benefits of New Vinyl Siding

While it may be more fun to add a new pool or spa to your home, it will not give you the same increase in value as a practical improvement like vinyl siding. For most home improvements, if you can come close to having an increase in home value equal to the cost of the improvement, it is considered a good investment. Siding usually adds almost as much value as it will cost, unlike many other projects that offer little or no increase in home value.  

However, value is not the only benefit to adding new siding, especially if you are selling your home. Vinyl siding has other benefits that may make your home more desirable to buyers, adding value in a different way, including: 

  • Curb appeal and overall home appearance
  • Easy maintenance and care – no need for constant painting or difficult cleaning
  • Longevity
  • Energy efficiency 

Even if you are not planning to sell your home, you want a home that looks beautiful that is easy to maintain, making new vinyl siding an excellent choice. To learn more about adding new siding to your home, call your local siding or home construction contractor.
